Help your dog beat the heat this summer

Even the healthiest and youngest pets can suffer from heat stroke, dehydration and overexposure to the sun.

The ASPCA warns pet owners to take some simple precautions to help prevent your pet from overheating.

Especially if your pet is outdoors, make sure they have plenty of fresh, clean water. And be sure he is put in a shady place and out of the sun.

Helpful Guidelines

  • Be careful not to over exercise them, and keep them indoors when it's extremely hot.
  • Know the warning signs of overheating. They include excessive panting or difficulty breathing, drooling, mild weakness or even collapsing. Pets with flat faces, like Pugs, are more susceptible to heat stroke since they cannot pant as effectively as other dogs.
  • Elderly and overweight pets should be kept in a cool place as much as possible.
  • Never leave your pet in a car, even with the windows open, they can quickly become overheated.
  • Do not leave a pet unattended around a pool. Remember not all dogs are good swimmers, and they can become trapped in a pool without a way out.
  • Don't let your dog stay on hot asphalt, the ground can heat up quickly and burn the dog's pads.

Always leave your pet at home when you head out to any firework displays and never use fireworks around your dog.

For more information about helping your pet during the summer go to the ASPCA web site.
